Philippines Holidays,  Philippines Holiday Packages Overview

The Philippines is a budget friendly destination that attracts tourists from every part of the world because of its laid-back culture, friendly locals and beautiful beaches. The Philippines is made up of over 7,000 islands, making it easy to find beautiful beaches just about anywhere. Its many cities provide colourful views and beautiful colonial architecture.

While there are endless beaches throughout the country, the ones at El Nido, Boracay, Pagudpud and Puerto Galera are the most popular. Diving at Anilao and the Tubbataha Reefs National Park is an amazing experience because of the coral reefs and the thriving marine life.

The Philippines also offers many accessible adventures. Boracay offers kite boarding, Samar has cave systems and North Luzon has mountains with good trekking opportunities. Most of the adventures in the country are in and around the sea. Bicol, Daet and Boracay offer good windsurfing and kitesurfing opportunities while other pursuits include wakeboarding, kayaking and rafting. There are also several volcanoes across Mindanao, Mindaro and the Luzon for hiking.

Batad is home to the beautiful rice terraces, a World Heritage Site that is a fascinating place to visit. The baroque churches in Philippines are also quite beautiful because of their elaborate architectural details. Quiapo is home to the Basilica de San Sabastian, an all-steel basilica that is quite unique.

Manila is the capital of the country and a very densely populated city. Scattered throughout the city are historical landmarks, sights and monuments worth visiting but the resourceful, friendly and smiling people of the city are the highlight.
